The money in my checking account cannot replace the joy, love, and happiness in my life’s savings.

I am thankful that I have money and that I can use it to provide for my family. But money itself will never fulfil any need that I may have. My deepest needs are met by my loved ones.

I appreciate my money and I know how to use it wisely. I use it to finance the better things in life. The best things in life are not things; the best things in life are relationships. I am not in a relationship with money. I do not love money nor do I hate it. Money is simply a tool.

My life is rich with joy and my joy is contagious. My positive attitude allows me to draw joy from various sources. I get joy from watching children play and laugh and I am filled with joy when I see rays of sunlight peeking through the clouds. 

Love is an integral part of my life. I am worthy of love and I know that I am deeply treasured. Unconditional love is the best gift I have received. To know that my faults are forgiven and that I am loved in spite of them is to experience genuine happiness.

Reflecting over my life keeps me aware of my blessings. There are many memories that make my life great and I make a point of it to preserve my memories through photos and journals. I have a beautiful life!

It does not matter whether my checking account is full or empty. Love, joy, and happiness belong to me. Whether I gain the world or lose it all, I know what my real treasure is.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How full is my life’s savings account?
2. How do I preserve good memories?
3. What is my real treasure?
